from a federal perspective is that this takeover is subsidized through tax credits that or just extended by the fiscal cliff bill, which allows investors to come into our inner-city neighborhoods and build expensive buildings, turned over and lease them to a charter boards and high rates, so charters don't have sufficient funding to even operator schools as far as operating expenses such as teachers and books and so on. i'm concerned about proliferation of charter's and what this has done to destroy neighborhoods. host: here's a comment -- coming up next, we will talk more about immigration policy. what the president had to say yesterday and what a bipartisan group of senators announced earlier this week. argos -- our guest is carlos gutierrez, now working on immigration issues as well as other things in his portfolio. later on, paul krugman, a columnist, gave us a visit. we will be right back.

of comments last week about the issue of a carbon tax. that is something that keeps coming up on capitol hill that perhaps a legislative solution to the climate change problem would help. explain what a carbon tax is. guest: a carbon tax is really the ultimate climate policy. it is what economists and the environmentalists say would be the policy that would make a fundamental change in the market and in the environment. it would put a price on carbon pollution. carbon pollution is the main source -- or green as gases -- are the main cause of climate change -- global warming. there are coal-fired power plants that are allowed to emit carbon pollution and they do not pay. the idea is that if carbon polluters were to have to start paying, it raises the price of fossil fuel and raise the price of these polluting sources of energy and that will fundamentally drive the market toward cleaner, low pollution energies. it is also politically controversial. pricing carbon pollution means raising the price of electricity, gasoline, all the funds and always which we drive our economy. i think it would be

passing a background check, paying taxes, paying a penalty, learning english, and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that's only fair. right? so that means it won't be a quick process but it will be a fair process. >> woodruff: back in washington florida republican marco rubio, a member of the bipartisan senate group, still seemed concerned the president wanted to move too far too fast >> if this endeavor becomes a bidding war to see who can come up with the easiest, quickest and cheapest pathway to green card possible, this thing is not going to go well, folks >> woodruff: senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said he's withholding judgment for now >> i think predicting how one is going to vote on this package before it gets out of committee is something i'm not prepared to do. but i will say... what i will say is there is obviously bipartisan desire to move forward on immigration legislation. my assumption is the majority leader will be doing that. >> woodruff: that would be nevada democrat harry reid who said lawmakers must
